It may not have the name and the universe/lore as well as acting, but it certainly got the soul.
It's a satire, a spoof. A charming one, i like it too, but nevertheless.

Its revealing that some fans consider this superior to DIS

It's an homage by a Trek fan, for Trek fans. Frakes is working on this, Seth McFarlane is good friends with Patrick Stewart and my bet is other cast members of the golden age series are involved too in one way or another. It reeks of GeekTrekdom, in a good way.

And it's not DIS, its definitely STD

As for the ratings, I wouldn't worry, its in 2nd place on FOX in the demographics which spends the most money, thus the ideal target for ADs. It's here to stay... for now.

It's in second place for live action Fox shows if you average it out over the season. Given that it had an NFL lead-in and a huge opener, and has only done 6 episodes, it's heavily skewed by that. Looking at the current trend, it's actually well below. The last four episodes were significantly below Bob's Burgers, a show always in danger of being canceled. It's below Lethal Weapon and Lucifer. It's below Ghosted. A full season is a guarantee, but if it keeps hovering around a 0.9 in the 18-34, or falls to a 0.8, that's questionable. A 0.7 and it's dead.

Again, it launched to a 2.71, but its two most recent episodes were below a 1.0.

Prepare to be surprised. First run ratings are solid at 1.0, and the +7s are very good. I'm sure Fox is looking to make sure the ratings continue to hold, but if they do it's going to make for one of their most successful freshman dramas.

Most recent Orville was a 0.6. That's marginally above Arrow, about half of Scandal, and a third of Will & Grace. It's losing a third of its Gotham lead-in. It's below The Mick. It's half of Bob's Burgers.

The +7 is good, and it's near guaranteed to not get cut, but it's not a sure thing for next season.

The Orville is weird, its all over the place in terms of quality but the ratings actually aren't bad. I like it enough to see another season of it but I think they ultimately need to decide what kind of show it's going to be. Right now its sort of half serious drama, half mocking spoof.
 
Playing: Super Mario Odyssey, Wolfenstein II, SNES Classic
Watching: An Inconvenient Sequel, The Orville, Star Trek Voyager

STD is one show that should've been canceled after the pilot. Long live The Orville, a.k.a. the real Star Trek.

Would be quite a shame considering its far more entertaining and Geek/Trek than the jar jar abramised STD ( pun intended ).

Many old trekkies consider it the Trek serie they've all been waiting for since VOY/DS9/TNG. It may not have the name and the universe/lore as well as acting, but it certainly got the soul.
